Hunting for sport: Is hunting justified as a tradition?

  • Hunting is Legit

    “In 1937, hunters actually requested an 11% tax on guns, ammo, bows and arrows to help fund conservation. That tax, so far, raised more than $8 billion for wildlife conservation.”
    “In 1900, only 500,000 whitetails remained. Thanks to conservation work spearheaded by hunters, today there are more than 32 million.”
    “People have been hunting since prehistoric times to provide themselves and their families with food, fur and leather clothing, and hides for shelter.”

  • I am a MAN

    A real man doesn't have to go to the store to get food for his family. We also need to support our right to bear arms. So the corrupt government doesnt take them away from us. I support local deer in particular because local food is good for you and the local deer are organic and gluten feee too boot. Yum Yum.

  • Hunting is a rite of passage long forgotten by some Americans

    Hunting has long been a cultural ritual in American heritage. Moreover, a hunter is a status position in many American families that has been passed on from father to son or daughter throughout the course of time. In fact, many of the men consider as American pioneers and forefathers were hunters and hunting tales about Davy Crockett, Theodore Roosevelt, and others have played a role in shaping the masculinity of many young American males for decades.
    Getting close to nature, whether you explored a remote and dangerous wilderness or pursued a large animal, can be acceptable outlets for masculine urges as well as ways to mold good men.

  • Hunting is justified as a tradition.

    Hunting is an important tradition that should be preserved. It is also necessary to control the populations of certain animals that no longer have natural predators. Humans have been hunting for as long as we have been on Earth, and it is an important ritual which should be preserved in the future.

  • Hunting a Tradition

    Hunting is justified as a tradition, but it's even more justified as a practical institution. By hunting animals, we can control the populations of certain species, especially invasive or overpopulated ones. Hunting is a recreational activity, too. There's no reason we should stop people from hunting certain species of animals.

  • Hunting is justified as a tradition.

    Hunting is justified as a tradition. The fact is that hunting has been around as long as man has been around. Most young boys learn to hunt from their fathers so it is pretty much a family tradition as well. Hunting allows us to control the wild animal population and without it we would be over-run with wild animals.

  • It is Barbaric

    Unless you're living in the boonies and must, then I don't believe you should hunt. What I find even more appalling is the stuffing, mounting and displaying of dead animals. It's just something about death and murder. Why would you want to surround yourself with it? Violence and guns and murder.. Leave the animals out of it.

  • Traditions must change

    Hunting for sport is a barbaric practice and there are a lot of traditions in history that are barbaric that we, as a civilized society, no longer participate in. There is no good reason for us, as apparently intelligent beings, to prove our dominance over animals and nature anymore. The reasonable thing to do is stop.

  • How is killing innocent animals a sport?

    I understand people have hunted for as long as humans were put on earth. However, there was substantial differences from hunters then compared to hunters now. We have people killing deer and other animals for "fun." These innocent animals who have families, who have done nothing wrong, are being killed for entertainment. A little barbaric, don't you think? Hunt for food, or to tame a population, not for enjoyment.

  • No, It Is Not

    No, hunting for sport is not justified. Hunting for purpose, such as to use the animal for food or other materials, makes sense as there is a reason behind the behavior. However, hunting to display the animal, or simply to experience the hunt, should not be justified. It seems inhumane to hunt an animal just for the thrill. It is important to treat animals with respect, and if one must hunt, the entire animal should be put to use.
